Acerca de


The scope of the book is admirable. (Times Higher Education )

The best introduction to the critical study of design that I have encountered. (Building Design )

It is the most systematic, the most comprehensive and the most comprehensible account of what design history would like to be ... I would not hesitate to recommend it. (Designer’s Journal )

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
